Emergency Specialist Physicians Medical Associates (ESPMA) is an independent California Professional Corporation that has provided care for the patients at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance (PLCMMCT) since 1994. During its 22 years of service to the South Bay community the group’s sole mission has been to deliver high quality, compassionate care to all of our patients. We remain committed to partnering with our hospital and medical staff to fulfill the mission of Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance and the Providence Health System to deliver compassionate service to all. We are dedicated to the core values of Respect, Compassion, Justice, Excellence and Stewardship. ESPMA consists of 7 managing partners, 15 full time clinical partners, 10 part time physicians and 12 nurse practitioners.
The PLCMMCT Emergency Department is staffed 24 hours a day by ESPMA. In total, we provide 68 hours of Main ER physician coverage; 18 hours of fast track coverage; 9-18 hours of Pediatrics coverage and 27-36 hours of Nurse practitioner coverage every day. All the emergency department physicians are Board Eligible or Board Certified as Diplomates of the American Board of Emergency Medicine. Our physicians trained at some of the finest institutions and residency programs in the nation. While each member of ESPMA has unique clinical strengths, backgrounds and clinical interests, we all received advanced training and are clinical experts in the evaluation, resuscitation and stabilization of the critically ill or injured patient. All of our physicians remain committed to ongoing personal education with annual Continuing Medical Education (CME) as well as participation in the ABEM MOC program to ensure we are practicing state-of-the-art Emergency Medicine.
Many of our providers are actively involved in our South Bay Community. Our activities range from running local businesses to involvement in local civic projects and charities. We are very committed to our hospital as evidenced by our annual participation in fundraising. In addition, we provide annual donations to PLCMMCT. Many of us are parents of children in our local schools. We are dedicated to the health and well-being of the South Bay and its residents and we are honored to help in our patients’ healing when they face medical challenges. For over two decades, Emergency Specialist Physicians Medical Associates has taken pride in providing the best emergency medical care for all our South Bay residents. We pledge to continue to strive to make our community a better place while working to secure a healthier environment for future generations.
